Conclusion: At first glance, the LG Optimus 7 is a great looking handset. Although the screen is gorgeous, the buttons and overall build quality are disappointing. We'd like to see a better camera to set the handset apart, but we definitely approve of the inclusion of Play to DLNA which gives the LG Optimus 7 an edge.
LG Optimus 7 review: This Windows Phone 7 smartphone boasts 16GB of internal memory

Summary: The LG Optimus 7 may lack any 'wow' factor, but it is still an impressively constructed smartphone that benefits from Microsoft's slick Windows Phone 7 operating system. The Optimus 7 could well be the best LG smartphone we've seen in a long time.
Pros: 16GB internal memory, good build quality, relatively compact for a smartphone with a 3.8in screen
Cons: No memory card slot for extra storage, physical keys aren't backlit
Conclusion: We found that our review Optimus 7 ran Windows Phone 7 perfectly well; apps open in a flash and Windows Phone 7 is generally a great place to be. We prefer the experience on the slightly larger devices however, and we don’t feel that the design is quite as sharp as that of the Samsung Omnia 7 or the HTC 7 Mozart . We also don’t feel that LG’s added features really serve up that much of a benefit.
Pros: Panorama photo is fun, comfortable for making calls, Windows Phone 7 is generally a great refreshing operating system, compact, Zune, 16GB of memory
Cons: DLNA is send only, camera tinkering adds little over the default performance, design not as striking as some rivals, WP7 app support still a little unknown
